I'd like to create a multi-year crosstab query that looks like this:

                                     2008 Nov     2008 Dec     2009 Jan    2009 Feb
            Group 1
            Group 2
            Group 3

I know how to do this for "quarters" (e.g., 2008 Q2), but I can't seem to find a way to do it for "months."

Continuing from the previous question you submitted, try this:
          PIVOT Format(a.RegisteredDate,"yyyymmm");

Hi puppydogbuddy:   Thanks for the super-quick response!  

The Years and Months appeared OK, but they are in alphabetical and not chronological order, left to right.  I'd love to get them in chronological order.  Any ideas on this?

Good solution. It uses numbers to represent months, but that's fine.  They appear in the correct order.  Many thanks.
